At least five of the achievements listed by Kogi State Governor Ahmed Ododo to commemorate his first 100 days in office are seen as absurd by Nigerians.

These include a meeting with Nuhu Ribadu, the National Security Adviser (NSA), which has got people talking.

Yahaya Bello passed the baton of state leadership to Ododo on January 27. On Wednesday, the governor marked his first 100 days in office, highlighting what he considered his achievements within the period.

The digital flyers posted on Ododo’s official social media handle on Wednesday contained 31 items across five major areas, such as governance, agriculture, education, health and general information.

As seen on one of the flyers, five seemingly absurd items under the governance section are:

Announcement of the first set of appointments on the first day in office; screening/swearing in of new commissioners and senior aides to the governor

First courtesy visit of Ife-Olukotun Community in Yagba East Local Government Area

Home coming of His Excellency to a Grand Reception in Okene

Participation in the meeting of the Progressive Governors’ Forum in Abuja

Joint meeting of the governors of Kogi, Ondo, Taraba with the Hon. Minister of Agriculture and Food Security, Senator Abubakar Kyari


Quoting the post, @hauwauthman said, My thoughts and prayers are with my dear people of kogi State. God, I see what you’re doing for other people’s state, please whatever sin the people of Kogi state have committed, whatever witchcraft is over the state and it’s people, please lift it up and destroy it oh God.

Another social user, @Jaheim007, wrote, “Meeting NSA is an achievement❗ what manner of shamelessness is this🤦🏽🤦🏽 you may as well as included whisking away the declared WANTED @OfficialGYBKogi from @officialEFCC thereby evading the law as an achievement. Ododo Olodo.”

@IGONO said the governor was “truly God-sent”. “Your Excellency, you are truly God sent! Within just 100 days and you have recorded these achievements that even PDP and their Igala Agenda people could attain with their 16 years in office,” he said.

“No checks. You people just type whatever comes to your head and feed the public to undermine your Governor and Kogi. Tell me how these are achievements:- Homecoming of the governor – First courtesy visit by Ife-Olukotun community – Meeting with the NSA,” @AlexAdeiza wrote in a tweet.
